Buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life. One of the best qualities of wheeled vehicles is their incredible speed and high power-to-weight ratio. They don’t just “roll out”, they fly into battle, and the new Radpanzerhaubitze can almost literally do so. Under the hood of this beast sleeps a powerful engine that will propel you to 70 km/h when using the Rapid Driving mode. And of course, you can turn on Cruise mode for increased maneuverability. With speed like that, you’ll be capturing the enemy base before they have even left their Garages.
Some of the most powerful punches in the game are dealt from a distance by SPGs, and that’s what makes this class so unique. But what if you could bring such a hefty punch to the front line? Enter our new star in World of Tanks. The Radpanzerhaubitze auf Sonderkraftfahrzeug 1337 (G) is the first vehicle that can be played as an SPG as well as a nimble light tank.
The mighty howitzer mounted atop its six wheels can deal 690 damage with HE shells and deliver a 420 alpha punch with HEAT shells. That’s right, you can switch between explosive damage from a distance or a proper punch with 240 mm penetration to the face!
The enemy is trying to capture the base, but you are on the other side of the map. No worries! Switch to the top-down artillery view and use the extraordinary gun elevation angles of 75° to send a gift right back home.
A foolish enemy tries to get close and personal? Use the quick aim time, excellent accuracy, and fast-flying HEAT shells of your 5-clip autoreloader to blast them not just back to their Garage, but off the server. The Radpanzerhaubitze uses a similar loading system to the Soviet IS-3A, which means the first shell into an empty magazine loads faster than the last one.
Speed comes at a cost in World of Tanks, and the price to pay is usually armor. The Radpanzerhaubitze is no exception to this rule. If you want to go fast, you cannot go hard, and every added slate of steel will be deducted from the top speed. However, as any experienced tank commander will tell you, it doesn’t matter how thick it is, it is all about the angles you use it at.
One peek at this beauty with 1,050 HP will tell even a rookie that the Radpanzerhaubitze auf Sd.Kfz. (G) 1337 is blessed with armor at all the right angles. Shots at its front will almost automatically bounce off, no matter from which direction. But hold on, ‘cause this baby also got back! The unique design of the Radpanzerhaubitze allows for nice angles in the front and an armored party at the rear. Once again, the best of both worlds!
